Thoughts and Prayers

But not the stamp set!! I'm asking for some special thoughts and prayers for hubby's second interview for a permanent job next week. Would make the best Christmas gift for our little family!

Classic Alien Punch Art

I've now got an alien bug in my bonnet about Alien punch art. More research and the ideas kept buzzing and popping and fizzing in my brain. I'm a long term Star Wars and particularly Yoda fan - "Do or do not. There is no try." - hence the following card which was SOOO much fun to make!
And of course, who could forget dear old Marvin the Martian. "Where's the Kaboom? There's supposed to be an Earth-shattering Kaboom!"

aliens among us!

Punch art Aliens created for my SU sister Clare. She lamented the lack of alien punch art online and this is something like what I came up with yesterday. The only thing they're lacking is some punny or catchy alien message... I was thinking they are perfect for boys birthdays but can't think of a good message. Drop me a note and let me know what you'd suggest!

China Dolls

I was so happy with my little punch-art Asian dolls, I suggested to Caitlyn that we make another similar card for her best friend Bronte who celebrates her birthday this weekend. Bronte is Chinese and her favourite colour is red so we made this little dolls to represent Bronte and Caitlyn. Aren't they cute?

Inklings Cyberstamp Punch Art Challenge

My final challenge for the evening is a Punch Art Challenge. Like my Russian doll last cyberstamp I hosted, this is inspired by images that Stampin' Up! Australia currently doesn't include in the Idea Book Catalogue. There's no reason why we can't create punch art of images we demonstrators might wish were in the catalogue, is there?? So here's my Asian Dolls card:

Inklings Cyberstamp Colour Challenge

The second challenge for tonight's cyberstamp is a colour challenge. I picked the colours and then used the ColorCombo picker to create this image. Its a great resource! Pumpkin Pie, Garden Green, Riding Hood Red and Perfect Plum

I set myself the additional challenge of creating an Aussie Christmas card with this colour combo, so here's my sample:

Inklings Cybercrop Sketch Challenge

The first challenge tonight is a sketch challenge. Here is my sample:

The sketch is the first of Becky Fleck's September CardMaps

I love using sketches as a starting point when I'm stuck for ideas and Becky Fleck's sketches include quite a bit of detail so you can use as much or as little of the sketch as you like!
